TO WHAT DEGREE DO YOU POSSESS HOPE?

***

Beatrice answers

For Dante lest he should seem

To be very proud

***

NOTE: Pride is out of place in Paradise, and so Beatrice answers this question for Dante. Dante’s hope is very great, and so he has been allowed to visit the afterlife before his death.
